Although either of them can be used alternatively to build front-end applications, they’re not completely the same, and each has strengths and weaknesses on different grounds. To understand the differences and the requirement that the developer needs to fulfill, a comparison needs to be done.
Moreover, all of the frameworks have similarities that it is component-based and allows the rapid creation of UI features, they all have a different structure and architecture.
The final comparison is with Vue.js is a library for powerful and interactive web interfaces. Vue.js is focused on the ViewModel layer of the MVVM pattern. It’s known as a progressive framework, which means this framework allows you to create any app structure that you want. This can’t be done in Angular. Vue.js uses DOM-based templating where each Vue instance is connected with a corresponding DOM element.
Angular mainly used in enterprise projects, and according to BuildWith’s data, it powers over 97,000 websites. Among all the three frameworks, Angular has the least stars in GitHub with 68k when compared with the other two. According to BuiltWith, Vue is used by over 1 million websites. It’s a very strong, independent project developed and led by an ex-Googler Evan You in the open-source community. Leading with the most stars on GitHub, Vue comes with 176k stars.
According to the results of JS Framework Benchmark, although each of them performed quite well, there are some differences. In the case of selecting rows, Vue is considerably slower than Angular and React. But at the same time, Angular and React are considerably inefficient at swapping rows. In most cases, the differences in rendering benchmarks won’t produce noticeable results. React and Vue are powerful in memory and booting time but Angular is a bit slower. It has slower performance than React and Vue due to the many features of this framework that makes the heavier application and slower performance.
The three frameworks – Angular, React, and Vue is all under very active development in the current industry. They even regularly release new versions and maintain the existing ones, thus it is improving daily and coming up with better choices. But, mistakes made in the beginning may cause problems later. So, choose the framework as per the need, flexibility, and design scalable architecture.
